A SACRED TASK
Whenever you come together-Let all things be done for edification
1 Corinthians 14:26
To understand edification, go back to the Old Testament, building of the tabernacle in the wilderness; "Then have them make a sanctuary for me, and I will dwell among them." The Hebrews were instructed to build a dwelling place for God. Fast forward to 1 Corinthians 3;16-17; "Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit dwells in your midst?...God's temple is sacred and you...are that temple."
Edification means a building or the act of building. Just as the Israelites built a tabernacle as God's dwelling place, so the Church is the "building" we are constructing until Christ returns, And how do we build the Church? With God's wisdom by His Word and Spirit. In short, the truth of God is the "mortar" that binds the "living stones" of the Church
Are you mixing the mortar? Are you walking in the truth, applying the truth to your life and the lives of others? Ours is a sacred task, a sacred temple.
